FAIRWINDS Foundation Sponsors Financial Literacy

City Year Orlando is proud to announce FAIRWINDS Foundation as a new partner in our work through their investment in City Year Orlando AmeriCorps members and the students we serve.  We believe that we all have a role to play in the economic growth of our communities. Like the FAIRWINDS Foundation, we know that when individuals are financially informed, they are better positioned to secure and improve their financial well-being.  

FAIRWINDS Foundation will support financial literacy training for the City Year Orlando corps, as well as school-based math and financial literacy initiatives. Beginning this school year and into next, 80 AmeriCorps members will develop the skills to become financially free through saving and building credit. The partnership also includes our work with students attending eight Title I OCPS partner schools, equipping AmeriCorps members serving in 35 math classrooms, reaching more than 500 students. 

We are proud to support City Year Orlando, and we look forward to the impact they will make in helping others achieve financial freedom through education,” said Elisha González, vice president of community relations and government affairs at FAIRWINDS and executive director of the FAIRWINDS Foundation. “The FAIRWINDS Foundation believes that when AmeriCorps members and students have the information and tools needed to secure and improve their financial health, we collectively impact and improve our community’s economic well-being.” 

We look forward to launching the program this spring with FAIRWINDS Foundation and celebrating the success of this initiative.
